What You Need to Know About Pediatric Cancer
Cancer is a significant health issue affecting children worldwide, with approximately 400,000 new cases emerging each year. In the United States alone, it is projected that around 9,910 children under the age of 15 will receive a cancer diagnosis in 2023. Among children aged 1 to 14, cancer stands as the second leading cause of death after accidents.
The specific treatment approach for pediatric cancer varies depending on the type of cancer diagnosed. Treatment options may encompass surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and sometimes immunotherapy. In certain cases, a patient may undergo a combination of these treatments.

Unyielding Support: Brendan's Journey
“Finley Forever has been an absolute blessing for our beloved Brendan. Even before launching her foundation, Lacey's compassionate outreach showed us the genuine care and understanding she had, as Finley herself battled the same neuroblastoma that Brendan faced. With invaluable knowledge about cancer and Brendan's treatment journey, Finley Forever has truly transformed our lives by generously assisting us with bills and providing much-needed gift cards for gas and comforting cups of coffee. The sheer joy on Brendan's face as the Lights and Ladders Brigade adorned our home remains etched in our hearts, and despite the heart-wrenching relapse, we were humbled to witness the incredible support of having our home decorated twice. This remarkable organization will forever hold a special place in our hearts as we remain forever grateful for their unwavering presence in our lives.”
- Tim B (Brendan's parent)
